    Toy Fair 2016: Mixels
    Hot Bionicle NewsWednesday, February 17th, 2016 at 8:03pm by Andrew, BZPower News Manager

    The Mixels are back in 2016 for another batch of zany fun! As usual we get three series each with three groups of three Mixels, for a total of twenty-seven to collect. To see what crazy themes and motifs the set designers came up with, read on!

    Mixels

    Toy Fair 2016 Mixels 01

    First up is a series of police-themed Mixels with a blue and white color scheme. I like how each one uses trans-blue and red to represent the flashing lights, and the police caps on Kuffs' eyes are perfect.

    Next up we have some medieval Mixels that look like they're castles come to life. Their poseability seems really limited compared to some others we've seen, but I do think they capture the theme well.

    41560 Jamzy & 41561 Tapsy & 41562 Trumpsy

    Toy Fair 2016 Mixels 04

    These may be some of my favorite Mixels yet, themed after musical instruments. We've got a guitar, drum set, and a trumpet, giving us a wide range of music to play. I love the printed 4x4 radar dish on Tapsy, and even the Nixel of the series is a star-struck fan.

    To go along with the police Mixels we also have some firefighter ones. I'm a fan of the walking fire hydrant, but the other two both have some nice designs as well.

    41566 Sharx & 41567 Skulzy & 41568 Lewt

    Okay, the pirate Mixels might top the music ones, with a shark, a skull, and a crab/treasure chest. The designs here are all fantastic, with hats, bandanas, eyepatches, and peg legs (even the Nixel is sporting a patch). Fantastic series.

    Next up we have medical Mixels, who I would not want operating on or examining me ever. Seriously, get that giant needle away from me! The colors are great though, giving us some elements in hues we don't get a lot of.

    Now we have some sanitation-themed Mixels who are ready to take your trash and clean your streets. I especially enjoy the walking dumpster, but I think they all have some great details.

    These Ninja Mixels are ready to kick some butt. There's definitely a little Asian flair to the characters, with even the Nixel wearing a bandana. I also like the use of 'gold' bars on Cobrax' chest to give him some texture and Mysto really captures the ninja theme well.

    This year's Mixels end on a high note with the TV crew ready to document the adventures of all the others. We have a news chopper, a TV, and of course the sound guy, who has a great printed tile on his chest.

    This year's Mixels really hit it out of the park with a variety of new themes and some great designs. There's so many cool-looking Mixels it will be hard to decide which to pick up. What are your favorites? Let us know in the Talkback. When you're done, check out the rest of our Toy Fair 2016 coverage and go vote for what theme you'd like to see us cover next. Until next time, keep checking back on BZPower!
